An utterly disgusting imbalance.

Kinda surprised this is a "first"
WASHINGTON - Nasa is sending an African-American astronaut to the International Space Station for the first time. The traveler is Jeanette Epps, a physics and science whiz who used to work for the CIA as a technical intelligence officer. Epps will head to the ISS as a flight engineer in 2018. Her commander will be Andrew Feustel, a veteran astronaut. “Each space station crew brings something different to the table, and Drew and Jeanette both have...

Africa is witnessing the birth of a new ocean which will eventually split the continent in two, say scientists.

Story
Tagline
I am me... ...that is all
Introduction
I think... therefore... therefore.... 

Damn! What was I thinking? I think it was Lorem ipsum... something or other....

I like all that computery stuff, gadgets, motorbikes, movies, music and I love photography and graphics.
I work in three different but related areas (well... ya gotta feed the family): photography, web design and web marketing.

I have a gorgeous wife (seriously, she's a knockout!) and three kids that occasionally border on being nut-cases (well- I'm their Da :) )
Bragging rights
I once got to record a few songs in The Factory Studio in Dublin, where U2 recorded their album Zooropa and mixed the tracks in the famous Windmill Lane studios not long after The Rolling Stones had been there.... but I don't like to brag about these things ;-)

Friendly staff that can be slightly swamped at busy times, but that won't deter them from trying to help you out. Plenty of choice food-wise.

This is definitely worth a visit. I dropped in with a few friends to catch a bit of the Isle of Man TT races together and have a bit of banter... couldn't have picked a better spot. The staff were very friendly and even asked at on stage if we could hear the commentary from the races and just handed me the TV remote to control the sound. A really nice spot with a good atmosphere, not too dark and not too bright, and a mix of customers from all age groups.

I cannot overstate how good is this school. With one of my kids finished there a couple of years ago and the other two working through the senior cycle at the moment, I think I can speak from experience and say that this is a very good school. Teachers seem personally invested in the progress of the kids and the results confirm this. A bonus in my mind is that the school is out in the country and the kids pretty much stay on school grounds for the day.

I cannot give enough praise for this firm. Thorough, professional, knowledgeable and supremely capable, but always friendly plain-speaking too.

Friendly guys, bikers too and happy to help you find what you need whether it's in stock or needs to be ordered. They'll even have a coffee with you upstairs.
